    Re: Private Message Settings

    I've gotten used to small pm messages. maybe if it takes more than a few lines exchange emails, and add more info ..
    you might have to get a web based email account like ymail, lycos, altavista or mailexcite .. I think Jeeves is still on vacation.

    We do have an overall storage constraint. Although it wasn't spelled out explicitly in Ralph's initial post, we've already adjusted this once, to the current settings favoring more messages at the expense of message length, in response to user requests. It's apparent that any particular tradeoff isn't going to please everybody.

    Please keep in mind that the PM function here is not intended to be a general-purpose email service. It's really primitive and doesn't have the features you'd want for either message drafting or archiving, as noted we have a storage constraint, and ultimately it's not our purpose to provide such a comprehensive service. The PM function is provided as a convenience to support brief exchanges related to Forum activity. If you want to engage in a detailed, ongoing correspondence with someone it's best to move that to an external email account.
